The popular chat app is preparing loads of stuff for next year which takes things to a whole new level.

Here are four features we hope to see in 2023 which have already been leaked.

Picture-in-picture video calling

Picture-in-picture video calling is a very useful trick for multitasking.

It means you’ll be able to leave WhatsApp as you chat to a friend while doing other things on your device.

It’s already being trialed by beta testers but it is expected to launch for everyone sometime early 2023.

Voice status update

Lots of people use the status update element on WhatsApp.

But next year it could be getting a welcome addition in the form of voice updates.

Volgens WABetaInfo, you’ll be able to post a voice note of up to 30 seconds on your status updates.

Edit messages

The ability to edit messages on WhatsApp has been up for discussion for a while now.

Beta testers have tried various early builds of a way you hold and correct mistakes after they’ve been sent.

Here’s hoping we could finally see this highly-requested feature land in 2023.

Search for messages by date

Search has improved loads on WhatsApp in recent years but it can still be hard to sift through tonnes of conversations.

Thankfully developers appear to be working on another way to narrow results down.

Leaks indicate that they’re building a tool to set a date range.

As with any early leaks, WhatsApp may decide not to release it at all, so we’ll have to wait and see whether any of these will come true.

How to get WhatsApp beta
